Health’s Up is a podcast that explores healthy choices through child voices. Cleveland students in the Circle Scholars program attend a virtual session with the Health’s Up team to learn about stress and how to cope.
Health’s Up is an experiment in health education. The brainchild of Kristi Westphaln, a pediatric nurse practitioner doing her post-doctoral work at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. The brilliance of Health’s Up is that it is driven by the “experts,” the students who determined what they were most interested in learning. This is promoting student engagement at the highest level by including the learners in designing their educational experience.
“The Health’s Up project is more than just a project to me. It is the embodiment of a dream that weaves child choice and voice into their health experiences.” – Kristi K. Westphaln, PhD, RN, CPNP-PC
